Louisiana’s Givers have returned with their tour de force sophomore album, New Kingdom, out now on Glassnote Records. Hailed by NPR, Stereogum, New York Magazine and more, New Kingdom offers an organic fusion of southern soul and pop. Latest single “Sleeper Hold” ft. Dr. John bursts open the sonic palate and showcases Givers’ darker, ethereal side.
GIVERS has developed an enraptured fanbase with their irresistible melodies, rib-rattling beats and explosive live show. The band is thrilled to announce that they will hit the road once again in 2016, making stops in NYC, Chicago, Columbus, Athens and more. Fans will have many new chances to experience new album favorites and beloved hits, as the band sets stages ablaze across North America.
The New York Times declared, “The music affirms joy with globe-spanning grooves” upon the release of GIVERS’ 2011 debut album In Light. During that time, they found themselves bouncing along a global festival circuit, making their national TV debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and performing alongside the likes of Preservation Hall Jazz Band at Carnegie Hall.
